Orthodox Rabbis Ask. Mail Ban on Hate Material

Former Detroiter
Active Artist in
Ein Hod Colony

Special to The Jewish News
EIN HOD, Israel.—This is one
of the most interesting spots in
modern Israel. It is an old Arab
village that has been transformed
into a most fascinating art colony.
Artists of all descriptions are
active here, creating their works
while participating in the settle-
ment's agricultural activities.
" The name Ein Hod means the
Fount of Splendor. It is in the
Jezreel area, on the side of a

Fertilizers and

The country has had a favorable
rainy season. The farmers hoped
that the rain would continue to fall
the whole of the winter. But every
tiller of the soil knows that this
heavenly gift is not sufficient—much
preparatory work is involved to
guarantee large yields. First of all
the vitality of the soil must be re-
plenished and it must be well
The Fertilizers and Chemicals
Company near Haifa assists Israeli
farmers by its production of all
kinds of chemical fertilizers that
are needed in modern farming. • Fif-
teen main products •of an annual
quantity of over 200,000 tons find
their way to the local market and
abroad too. Last year alone the com-
pany sold IL26m. worth of products
thus freeing the national purse of
foreign currency expenditure in im-
porting fertilizers.
No less important is the fact that
the company produces its products
from local raw materials. Giant
trains and trucks bring the phos-
phates from the Negev and the pot-
ash from the Dead Sea to the com-
pany's installations which are sited
in Haifa Bay where they undergo
various processes.
The beginnings of the Chemicals
and Fertilizers were very modest
but gradually the company grew
and , set up many installations which
cost IL60m.
1,100 persons ,now work in the
enterprise. The company's employees
have gradually acquired much ex-
perience in all fields of research and
production and chemical enterprises
abroad have applied to the company
requesting them to supply them with
its technical know-how.

The Rabbinical Council of
America concluded its 25th an-
nual convention with the adop-
tion of a number of resolutions
on Jewish life in America and
on international affairs affect-
ing Israel. The Orthodox rab-
binical group also announced
that it will hold a conference
in Israel next July "on the oc-
casion of the 13th anniversary
of Israel's establishment."

The convention called on
the United States Congress
and President Kennedy to
adopt legislation "banning
the use of the mails for the
propagation of racial and re-
ligious hate literature." The
rabbinical body also urged the
legislatures of the various
states "t6 outlaw discrimina-
tion because of race, creed, or
color, in the sale, rental and
occupancy of private realty."
The Council called simulta-

neously upon Congress to en-
act "a strong civil rights pro-
gram during the current ses-
sion." The resolution also ad-
vocated liberalization of Ameri-
can immigration statutes "so
that our country may again be-
come a haven of refuge for
the victims of all varieties of
Other resolutions adopted by
the convention appealed to the
Soviet Government to "grant
full and complete religious lib-
erty and unrestricted cultural
freedom to its 3,000,000 Jewish
citizens," and denounced the
action of the United Arab Re-
public in interfering with the
passage of I s r a e l i cargoes
through the Suez Canal. The
organization called upon the
United Nations to adopt drastic
measures to terminate the ille-
gal seizures and searches. ,
An appeal to American rab-
bis, scholars and graduate rab-
binical students to join in a
"Torah Corps" for service in
isolated communities in the
United States and South Amer-
ica was made by Rabbi Charles
Weinberg, president, at an earl-
ier session.
Rabbi Weinberg made the
proposal in his acceptance
speech and on his re-election at

the annual convention of the
association of Orthodox rabbis.
He said members of such a
Torah Corps would provide
"these outlying Jewish commun-
ities with rabbinic and lay lead-
ership in all fields of Jewish
Rabbi Weinberg appealed to
the United Nations "to adopt
sterner resolutions to combat
the virus of anti-Semitism and
to make it an international
crime. A ringing declaration
from the General Assembly
would make a deep impact on
those countries which foster the
outbreak and spread of anti-
Semitism and religious discrim-
ination in a variety of ways and
schemes. Anti-Semitism sets in
motion those evil forces which
are bent on subjugating the
free world and setting up tyran-
nical forms' of government in

New U.S.-Israel Firm
to Issue Israeli Books

Palestine Economic Corporation
announced it had established two
United States-Israel publishing
firms, the Massadah-PEC Press
Ltd. and the Peli-PEC Printing
, Ltd., both in Tel Aviv.
Joseph Meyerhoff, PEC presi-
dent, said the Massadah-PEC firm
will publish in English and other
languages books written and
edited in Israel for international
markets. Books in preparation
include 19 titles in archaeology,

every vanquished state," the
Orthodox leader said.
Rabbi Weinberg also ap-
pealed to "the Soviet •Govern-
ment to stamp out all vestiges
of anti-Semitism and religious
persecution, and to restore to
its Jewish residents those politi-
cal, spiritual and cultural guar-
antees which are the corner-
stone of the United Nations.
Since Russia is making such
stupendous progress on the
scientific front, there is no rea-
son why she can't make her
social and judicial system con-
form to the principles of scien-
tific liberalism, freedom of
movement, and recognition of
the basic rights of man."

Opinion on U.S. Aid
to Religious Schools

Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations of America an-
nounced, following an all-day
conference on the issue of elim-
inating religious schools from
the federal aid bill, that it
would refrain from taking a
public stand on legislation in
this area pending further -study
and decision of its board of
The meeting, which was at-
tended by representatives of 13
Jewish national organizations
and community councils, was
convened by the UOJCA joint
commission on communal rela-
tions and education, in accord-
ance with a resolution at its
1960 national convention. The
resolution called for examina-
tion of the orthodox organiza-
tion's posititon and policy on
such public aid.
The 10-hour session heard
arguments from Jewish com-
munal organizations, which are
unanimously opposed to federal
aid to religious schools and
from various orthodox Jewish
groups among whom opinion
largely favors such aid. The
action of the UOJCA in assem-
bling and presenting the views
of so wide a range of other
Jewish organizations, prior to
reviewing its own policy, was
believed to be unique in Ameri-
can, Jewish organizational pro-
